BOOK REVIEW OF CASTLES IN THE SAND BY CAROLYN A. GREENE
by Books and Chocolate
Castles in the Sand is “fiction with a message” that tells a composite story of how contemplative spirituality is impacting Christian colleges and universities, churches, and seminaries worldwide. While the book features fictional characters, it is based on the real life and teachings of Teresa of Avila which are embraced today in the Christian contemplative spirituality movement.
The topic itself was of interest to me but this is also a well-written story with all the components of a good suspense novel that I read in one evening because I couldn’t put it down. . . .
[A]nyone who enjoys Christian suspense fiction will like this book, as will anyone who has questions about what is at the foundation of contemplative spirituality. I also think it is a good book for parents and students to read just to be aware of the ways contemplative spirituality may be represented on college campuses. To read entire book review, click here.
